Just For Morons

So I was talking on the phone to my Hubby this weekend, and he says he is going to go out and get a haircut. This is good, he needed one, and I told him not to be afraid to get it cut short ( they always leave it too long and he never says anything).
So then he tells me he used that Just For Men haircolor crap.

I guess being the "Old Man" at work has been getting to him. Being on the late side of his 40's makes him old enough to be the dad of most of the guys he is working with.
They are of a different generation, mostly in their 20's, and they dress differently and talk differently and listen to different music. Changing his hair isn't going to make him 30 again.
Or cool.

Silly old man, his wife doesn't want him to look like a boy, his wife loves his silvery hair. It looks sexy ( though he insists on wearing it too long).

He tells me the color turned his hair orange, and he needs it cut short enough to fit under his hat! ACK!
So I say in my sweetest most supportive wife voice, " I told you so, Dumbass!"
And suggested he stay in Florida til it grows out.
Luckily he was kidding , he says it's back to sandy blond, and he thinks it makes him look younger. Yah , suuuuure, whatever.

He says goodbye , telling me that it's good we still want to look good for eachother.

If he wanted to look good to me, he would leave his hair silver and learn to pick his dirty socks up off the floor.

Ummm, start putting the dirty socks on his pillow. He'll get the message.

FWIW, this 31-year-old has recently started using Just For Men to hide his grey hairs. I'll be teaching undergrads in the fall. Even though I know that I cannot be an undergrad again, I still don't want them looking at me like I am "ancient." I know it's silly, but it does make me feel a little better. But maybe your hubby and I both live on the same delusional-male-ego island. :)

I absolutely agree with you 100%, Buggy. Silvery hair is sexy. Dirty socks are not.

HD, "delusional-male-ego island," love it. LOL.

I have seen first hand that your hubby is handsome with his silvery hair.

Hi buggy!

HD!
If you are going to color your hair get a decent hair color product, seriously that stuff is crap! You don't want it to look fake.
Ha! Ancient at 31?!
*laughs self silly*

Dirty socks on his pillow? Are you people nuts??? I have to sleep there too!

Hi Wheezy! I thought you were on vacation?

You tell Zuma that silver hair is dignified. (the orange hair part reminded me a little of Greg Brady.)

PS Hi!

I'm telling telling Zuma you said that,Moonie!
Because the silver is gorgeous!
You can dye your hair a boring color, but you can't buy that beautiful silver.
If I could have those silver streaks, I would.
My Hubby just won't listen to me.
Badly dyed hair looks older than naturally silver anyday.

And to any men reading, that Just For Men color is crap, it never looks natural, ever.
If you are going to color your hair at least get something good.
Hubby will be home on Friday, I'll let ya'll know how bad I hate it then.

I like the silver hair too. Growing old together is the best part!

Oh and when my hubby cleans the toliets, it is on!!

I'm dying laughing here. DH seems to think he needs to cover up this little patch of gray that he has in the front. I love it - gives him character and it's just...sexy! He's threatened several times to have his step mom dye his hair - she's a hairstylist. I won't let him do it. Tell Zuma it's sexy for men to have the silver/gray look. Not so much for women.

My dad used to use the Just For Men stuff, even on his mustache. He looked like he was stuck in the 70's. Finally he just shaved it off and it really made him look younger.

The ex was loosing his hair at an early age, he'd complain about it all the time even though I said it was sexy. I guess guys are entitled to their hang-ups too. :P

DH has that silvery thing going on, too, and I begged him not to touch it. He also has a bit of the thinning going on, and I fully encouraged the cutting short of it, as well. There's something quite sexy about short, silvery hair on a confident man.

I think more men should realize this, so people like tom crazyboy cruise would have to sell carnations on the roadside like they should have been all along.

I love silver hair on men. You tell Zuma to stop messing with the silver.

Does he work anywhere near Brandon? Or I-75 in Tampa? Does he like bar-be-que? If so, he must try First Choice Bar-be-que in Brandon. It's on Brandon Blvd right off of the I-75 exit. It is in a strip mall that also has a Home Depot. He'll be able to navigate to it by just following his nose. It's not fancy, just very good stuff. I used to work near there and we went to First Choice at least once a week for lunch.

He should also try LeRoy Selmon's restaurant. It's on Lois Avenue, near the International Mall. Fabulous down home cooking with the best pork bar-be-que, hush puppies, and greens I've ever had.

If I think of any other places he should go I'll let you know.

*smooch* to the Bug and her Zuma

Definitely, anything tha does not look natural should be avoided at all costs. Also, just mention Anderson Cooper, and maybe Richard Gere too.

If I had hair, I'd want silvery hair.

If I had hair.

The jokes on him, because that cheap crap didn't really cover the silver at all. Made it less shiney, but other than that, it didn't do much.

Dweeze? I think you look great smooth!

I tease Mr. Silver that I'm making his hair gray. He was a blonde when I married him, but his hair is slowly turning silver at a faster rate than mine. I am looking forward to silver hair, but men seem to look better with it than women. Why is that?
